Myron Vale

Created by Scott William Carter

A shot to the head leaves Portland private detective MYRON VALE with a .38 slug lodged in his brain, one hell of a headache... and the ability to see dead people.

Which turns out to be a great way for him to increase his customer base, now that Myron doesn't have to limit himself to living clients in this promising new series.

Scott William Carter's first novel, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, was hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "touching and impressive debut" and won the Oregon Book Award. Since then, he has published numerous novels and short stories, including a series written under the pen name of Jack Nolte, revolving around another damaged P.I. in the Pacific Nortwest, Garrison Gage, although this one doesn't seem to have much to do with the supernatural. The author lives a stone's throw from the Oregon coast.


  • "The Sixth Sense meets Spenser For Hire in Scott William Carter's magnificent Ghost Detective."

-- Michael J. Totten, author of Taken

  • "Scott is one of those rare writers who can and does cross genres, and do it well. You never know what kind of story you'll get from him, but you do know that it'll be good."

-- Kristine Kathryn Rusch
